I can’t believe I’m so close to Day 80! Including today, I have fourteen days to day 80/80. This challenge was so overwhelming back on Day 1 and now I’m in the homestretch.
Several people have asked me, now what? What are you going to do on Day 81. My answer used to be EAT ALL THE THINGS! Now my answer is, “I honestly don’t know!”
I will keep on keepin on, I suppose. I know for a fact that I am not drinking a Meal Replacement Shake for a very long time if ever again. I think I’ll probably stay booze free for the now. I still have more weight to lose post day 80. I’m coming along just fine but it’s not worth it right now to indulge.
As for food. I can’t visualize myself eating terrible things. That’s a good thing, right?!?! But maybe if there’s a cheesy dip or something snackish, finger-foodish then maybe I’ll have a taste or two. But I just don’t see myself crashing and burning.
I also have a beach vacation this summer so I can’t just face-plant off the wagon. I have to stay strong. And it goes beyond the vacation. It’s life I want to be good at and it’s hard to be good at life when you’re unhealthy.
So I’m at a mental crossroads. EIGHTY days is a long time to be committed to something like this. Clearly, my mental state is in the process of change. I’m bored and over this challenge but I can’t see myself doing anything else. It’s a conflicted time for me. I know I will have to find balance of sorts because even though I don’t see myself crashing and burning, I also don’t see myself never having a beer or a nice whiskey. I also don’t see myself not eating a piece of cheesecake or a scoop of ice cream ever again.
At some point, I will reward myself in terms of food. But that moment is still far away… I think, I hope!
JUST STRONG BRAND AMBASSADOR!
In other news, I was selected to be a brand ambassador for Just Strong Clothing. They are based out of the UK and have some really cute stuff. If you want to check them out, I have a discount link for 10% off. CLICK HERE to shop and get your discount. Please note, that it is international shipping and will take a little longer than U.S. shipping.
They have some fun items and some basics as well. What I have worn is definitely comfortable and didn’t bug me during my workouts. I was weary because A. it’s from another country and B. ordered online not knowing the fit! But all-in-all, it was a win. I’ll be getting more stuff in the near future.
